Deep and long-term untreated caries in the tooth can reach the nerve tissue called pulp. Therefore, symptoms such as pain and dental hypersensitivity may occur. In order to eliminate such complaints of the patient, it is necessary to clean the decay and remove the pulp from the root canal system.

Spontaneous pain, pain during chewing or excessive sensitivity may persist even when canal treatment is performed. Because there may be extra canals that could not be detected in the first treatment, microorganisms may not be completely cleaned from the root canal system, or the canal filling may not be done well. For such reasons, the dentist decides to renew the root canal treatment.

Cracked teeth, teeth exposed to continuous trauma and teeth with incorrect orthodontic force can lose their vitality over time without showing any symptoms. The pulp tissue inside the tooth dies and the pulp necrosises, the root canal system becomes infected. Therefore, the tooth colour changes. Even if the patient has no complaints, canal treatment should be performed on the tooth in this situation. If it is not treated, lesions occur in the roots of the tooth, these lesions may cause tooth loss.

Dental fillings or restorations should certainly be performed on the teeth that root canal treatment has been performed. Root canal treated teeth whose fillings or crowns fall off are considered infected if they remain this way for more than 4 weeks. In this case, it will be appropriate to renew the root canal treatment for the new restoration.

Patients with facial swelling due to abscess formation in the teeth should visit the dentist. The cause of the abscess may be the formation of a cyst in the root of the tooth with root canal treatment. In this case, the root canal treatment should be renewed and the cyst should be cleaned with surgical procedures such as apical resection. If the cyst is too large to be cleaned, the tooth may be lost.

Especially in very crowded teeth, the tooth may become very sensitive during veneer treatment or the pulp may be exposed with tooth cutting. In this case, the dentist directs the patient to canal treatment. Root canal treatment should be performed as a preventive procedure.


What is root canal treatment?

It is the treatment of the tooth by the dentist with medical instruments as a result of the pulp being invaded and infected by microorganisms for various reasons.


Endodontic Root Canal Treatment


Is root canal treatment safe?

Pain and swelling may occur during the treatment phase. This situation is normal. If the pain continues for more than 1 week, the dentist should be visited.

There is a low risk of complications during treatment.

  • Endodontic instruments can be broken in the root canal. The broken instrument can be removed or the treatment can be completed by bypassing the instrument. The root canal instrument left in the root is not harmful to the health of the body. The canal instrument that cannot be bypassed or removed may cause loss of the tooth.
  •  During treatment, perforations may occur in the coronal or apical part of the tooth. A perforation is an unnatural cavity in the tooth. Perforations are not a cause for concern. Treatment is possible with medical repair materials. Despite perforation, root canal treatment can be completed in an ideal way.
  • In order to reach the pulp, it is necessary to remove more material from the tooth. This may reduce the durability of the tooth. Especially in multi-session root canal treatments, there is a temporary dental filling on the tooth in the intermediate sessions. The patient's active use of the tooth causes the tooth to break. Fractures reaching the root surface can lead to tooth loss.
  • Patients with heart disease must first obtain permission from the cardiologist. Microorganisms in the root canal can reach the heart valve during root canal treatment and cause inflammation. This is called endocarditis and it is very dangerous.
  • Root canal treatment increases the risk of endocarditis in patients who have recently planned heart surgery. For this reason, the cardiac specialist may request extraction of the tooth.
  • There is a possibility that root canal treatment may fail due to the drugs used by patients receiving chemotherapy. Complications such as abscess formation in the tooth root are common. Depending on the lack of a strong immune system of the patient, abscesses may recur and cause loss of the tooth.

Root canal treatment aftercare

Nothing should be eaten or drunk until the effect of local anaesthesia wears off. It usually lasts for two or three hours.

If the root canal treatment is completed in a single visit, not chewing with the treated area for about 1 week after treatment will increase the healing process.

In multiple session root canal treatments, the teeth with temporary fillings should not be used until the treatment is completed. Since high force is applied during chewing, it may cause fracture or damage to the temporary filling and extends the treatment time. There is no harm in using the tooth immediately after the multiple session root canal treatment is completed.

Routine oral care should be continued. There is no harm in brushing the treated teeth and using mouthwash. Dental floss should be used.

You may need to use antibiotics and painkillers with the advice of the dentist, especially if you have root canal treatment due to abscess. It is also recommended to minimise hot foods consumption.

You should not use medicines that are not prescribed by the dentist.

Regular visits to the dentist is necessary.

Cleaning Root Canal System
Cleaning and Filling the Root Canal System

Pulp tissue or previously made canal filling is cleaned. The root canal system is properly expanded and disinfected. If the root canal treatment is to be completed in a single visit, root canal filling is performed with the appropriate material. In case the tooth is infected, the treatment is not completed in a single operation, medication is applied locally to the tooth canal in intermediate visits. When the dentist is convinced that the infection is completely healed, then the canal filling is performed.

Dental Filling Restoration
Restoration Decision

After the root canal system is filled, a restoration is needed. Depending on the amount of remaining healthy tissue of the tooth, the restoration can be made as dental filling, inlay-onlay or veneer. If there is enough healthy tissue to be completed with a dental filling, the treatment finishes in the same session as the root canal filling. However, if it is decided to make inlay-onlay or veneers in teeth with high material loss, dental impressions are taken after root canal filling and sent to the laboratory for tooth production. The tooth produced by the laboratory is bonded to the tooth on the next visit by the dentist in the clinic and the treatment is completed. If a second visit is necessary, a temporary filling is performed during this time.

Melissa N. 01.03.2023
I wanted the smile makeover. I researched and contacted this firm. I had an online consultation with the dentist in Turkey. She convinced me that if we improve the alignment of my teeth, I will have an aesthetic appearance with laminate veneer without much damage to my teeth. She said that we could start clear aligner treatment first, but she said that the issue would be more clear in the clinical environment. The process progressed as we discussed at the beginning. It took some time, but I have both aesthetic and healthy teeth.
Jacob C. 04.06.2023
I have my wedding next month and I want everything to be perfect. I was not happy with the shape and colour of my teeth. I had some friends who had their teeth done in Turkey. I quickly searched the internet and met this team. They accompanied me throughout my entire treatment. I am very pleased with the clinic they recommended to me. I would like to thank my dentists and their team for giving me this beautiful smile before my wedding.
Georgiana B. 15.04.2023
I wished to reward myself and decided to have laminate veneers on my teeth. While searching on the internet, I realised that it was cheaper in Turkey. As a result, I contacted the company. They guided me and i went to Istanbul. Doctor Ege examined me and said that laminate veneers were not suitable. Because I was clenching my teeth too hard and the laminate veneer could be broken. He offered an alternative that we can achieve aesthetics with zirconium crowns, although not as much as laminate. I accepted but I had concerns. When my treatment was completed, I realised that my worries were unnecessary because it felt good. I liked that he warned me and gave up laminate.
Yusra B. 25.11.2022
I have a friend who has had teeth done in Turkey and is very naturalistic. I wanted teeth that were not noticeable by others, but I had mobility in my front teeth. I was very afraid of losing my teeth. When I sent my X-rays and photos, they said that there was nothing to be afraid of and that gum treatment would be done before the crown. When I first came to the clinic, the doctor and staff made me feel very comfortable. First, my gum treatment was done and it was expected to heal for 5 days. Afterwards, they made my teeth cut and took their measurements. After a very short time, I had teeth that were not noticeable from others, just as I wanted. When I looked at the mirror they gave me after they bonded my teeth, I couldn't stop myself from being surprised at how it could be so much natural. A team that understands your wishes and supports you from beginning to end.
Maciej M. 02.07.2023
I had heard that dental treatments were cheap in Turkey. I was concerned about the situation of some of my teeth. I did some research and met with various dentists. In general, they offered to make veneers on my 10 teeth to make my smile aesthetic. I also contacted Belal from this agency and he contacted me with prosthesis specialist Ege. Ege said that he thought I could have an aesthetic smile with fewer veneers. I wanted my teeth to look as natural as possible, so it built trust. I had planned a long holiday, I had a plan just in case. At first, I went to Ege's clinic, I was examined and we decided to make laminate veneers only on my 2 teeth that were worn out. So it was even less costly. My treatment was over before we could even discover Istanbul. I continued my holiday with my new teeth.
Samantha K. 12.04.2023
I could not laugh in front of my friends, I was constantly covering my mouth with my hand. I was very bored with this situation and I wanted to take action anyway. I found this place in my research on the internet and I contacted very quickly. When I told my story, they listened to me calmly and explained the solution very quickly and clearly. I liked this situation very much and we took the necessary actions without wasting any time. When I came to the clinic, they said that I had bone loss in some parts of my jaw, but that they would solve it with the most appropriate method. I reported that I could not sit on the couch for a long time and the doctor really acted very quickly and placed 4 implants on top and 2 implants on the bottom in almost 2 hours. We made an appointment for 3 months later and I had no problems with my temprorary teeth until then. When I came to the second time, they make my teeth without any trouble, I am very happy now and I can laugh as I want.
Ergunnes 01.10.2023
The dental crowns that I had done before harmed my gums and got a bad appearance. I wanted to change it, I reached this company by searching the internet. We had an online meeting and the dentist listened to me. The treatment plan they offered me seemed appropriate. We arranged my travel and accommodation with the company representative. They picked me up from the airport and took me to my hotel. Everything went very well. I rested for a day and then went to the clinic for my appointment. I had an x-ray and was examined. Doctor Ege created a new plan almost similar to the treatment plan they had made in our previous meeting. Istanbul was very fun, and my treatment was completed as I wanted.
Hazal D. 12.08.2023
I was not satisfied with my crowns that I had used before and I thought that they should be changed and I should use more natural crowns. I started to do research on the internet. When I found this place, they said that my gums might have problems and that's why my pain might be because of this. When I came to the clinic, we learnt that I had inflammation in my gums. Gum treatment was started quickly. first they made a proving and although it was a trial, it was very nice. After my recovery was complete, I went again and they took my impression. I had even more beautiful teeth than in the trial.
Pauline G. 25.10.2022
During our planned holiday in Turkey, I learnt that the dental service prices here are affordable. I met Mr. Bilal from the research I did on the internet. With his interest and quick guidance, we made an appointment to the dental clinic. I had a very fast and painless treatment process. At the end of the day, my veneer was natural and real like as I wanted.
Elena 02.05.2023
I was sure that my teeth would look different, so I thought I would feel better. I contacted with the recommendation of a friend. We met online, dentist Ege said that my smile was very aesthetic. At first I didn't understand why he did this, I thought it would be better to research other places, but during the conversation I realised that he cared about natural teeth. He also understood my concerns, I decided to be treated. Turkey is already a country where I have visited a lot, I like to spend summers in Antalya. I prepared my trip and set off for Istanbul. We completed my treatment in a short time, I am very satisfied.
